We are the first year doing it though so those boundaries were set by your school. I think the boundaries will be much lower than that because we don't really know what to expect and first year, they are usually low.

When will it get moderated? Is it different for different schools because I'm pretty sure mine has already been moderated.

I think the school marks it internally, giving you a mark. Then a select few are sent off for moderation to see if they have been marked correctly. If those few have then everyones mark stays the same. But if your school marked too leniently then all marks may get dropped.

For ocr design and technology exam do we need to know all the theory like all about the papers timbers metal etc... section. Or do we just have to focus on one? should we know a small bit about the other sections? This probs too late to ask a question

You need to know the core principles of each and one section in depth for a 12 marker + other questions.

How did everyone find it?

It was quite a weird paper, lots of 8 markers and we didn't know what to expect.
Grade boundaries should hopefully be low.

You needed to draw to scale, so 11 boxes upwards
Then draw the top bit 2 boxes up, the top bit was kinda complicated, you had to go sideways a bit but its hard to explain
